Dr. Schanzlin performed lasik eye surgery for me in January of 2001. I have Kaiser insurance and now seeing a Kaiser ophthalmologist. He seems to be confused about the status of my lasik surgery. I need to get my records. Is it still possible to get those records? Thank you, Dian Self dianself@hotmail.com 858-395-4285

I just had my Lasik done with Dr. Schanzlin and I had the best experience ever from New Vision. Right from the very beginning of my consultation and through all my follow ups they have been with me every step of the way. They explain every detail of what to expect and answered all of my questions.
